American Airlines is expanding its service to the French department of Martinique for the peak tourist season.
The company, which launched weekly Saturday service from Miami to Martinique in April, announced Thursday that it would be adding new flights on Wednesdays.
The service will cover the period from Nov. 27 to March 26, 2014.
The Wednesday flights will depart from Miami at 11:30 AM, returning from Martinique at 4:25 PM. American’s Saturday service departs and returns at the same times.
“This expansion showcases American Airlines’ commitment to Martinique as a tourist destination,” Martinique Tourism Commissioner Karine Roy-Camille said in a statement. “Martinique is more than ready to welcome American travelers during the winter season and beyond. With this additional flight and better air service, the island of flowers can become a top Caribbean destination for visitors coming from the United States.”
American will be operating the service on a Boeing 737 with a total of 16 business class and 134 economy seats.
